You are Perfect.

I've had this saved as a draft for a while now. Wasn't sure if I should share it or not, but feeling kind of down  today, so when I saw this, I knew I had to share it, it made me feel much better.
This is more of a story of me talking with a leader of my church before A was born. 

I was asked if I would display A's artwork, even when she was little & it didn't look like much other than scribbles.
Of course I would & I do. 
It would be beautiful to me wouldn't it?
Yup, it would be & it is.
He tied it into, that even though it wouldn't be perfect at first, I'd still love it, it'd be perfect to me with all of its imperfections, and that's how God sees me.
With all my imperfections, I'm perfect.

I know it's churchy but it stuck with me for other reasons. It helps me see that I don't need to be perfect, physically or when I do something, I just need to be me & do my best. So just remember, 

With all your imperfections, you are perfect.
